Mobile Guru update from our clever Search Gurus 0

Posted on April 05, 2016 by Liz Rowell
Key notes from Google’s recent Mobile Guru Program
  • The conversion rate on mobile devices tends to be lower than on desktops. However, mobile devices are still driving value to a brand because consumers use their mobile devices as one of the first steps in their buying journey. They might research brands and businesses relevant to their need before taking the final step on desktop later on.
  • People look at their phones up to 150 times per day and 95% of users will turn to their smartphone for immediate information, ideas or advice.
  • 82% of smartphone users turn to a search engine when looking for a local business

Thoughts on creative from Dale 0

Posted on February 02, 2015 by Liz Rowell

Creative will always be the true difference

There is a coming together of aspects in creating a truly great campaign including astute media strategy and of course a spanking creative idea and execution. Is one more important than the other?

While they should work beautifully together it’s certainly a major blunder if creative is wrong and a completely wasted investment. When the more tangible aspects of a project remain equal in so many ways it is the creative that offers you and your brand position, trust and distinction. It is the carefully thought through and appropriate catalyst to create the desired response and should never be under valued. I see cheap, hacked creative everyday and wince at the plain stupidity of it all.

Cracking creative makes media work twice as hard. It’s like the fuel to the engine.

If you’re currently unsatisfied with the creative you’re getting send it to me at dale@redark.com.au with your concerns and expect a rapid, telling response.

Creative Boundaries 0

Posted on August 25, 2014 by Dale Burrows

I’ve found that you can bring some real scale to an idea with this thought process.



Let’s say Brand X has a new pair of underpants.

Generate ideas with the concept of scale. Use your imagination.

What happens if I have no Underpants?
What happens if I have way, way too many underpants?
What’s the smallest underpants?
What could i do with the largest underpants in the world?
Who is someone that doesn’t use underpants?
Who is someone that uses them constantly.
What can I do with 100,000 underpants?
What would a world look like without underpants?

It’s all about extremes and you can go back and forth until something really interesting comes out.

An awesome way to explore boundaries.

The modern grocery buyer wants MygoodEbox 0

Understanding the modern grocery buyer

Research published by digital media company Mi9 highlights that advertisers need to change the way they target this profitable sector.

Mi9’s latest research report, ‘The Modern Grocery Buyer’, reveals that consumers now demand a more personalised shopping experience while also outlining how advertisers can increase sales by tailoring their approach to meet the individual wants and needs of grocery buyers.

“We’ve reached a turning point in grocery shopping – there is no longer a one-size fits all approach,” Mi9’s Head of Research and Insights Gabbi Stubbs said. “Smart FMCGs and supermarkets that are ready and willing to take action will provide more rewarding and enriching experiences for shoppers by targeting them based on their individual needs and preferences.”

The research identified three emerging segments of Australian grocery buyers: the ‘meal-to-meal shoppers’ who visit grocery stores usually on a daily basis and buy items to eat that day, those that ‘love in-store shopping experiences’, and the ‘passionately digital’ – those that shop or search online to help them plan what to buy.

The modern grocery buyer (MGB) is hyper-connected and their spending power is high. The total weekly grocery spend of MGBs who own smartphones is more than $790 million a week, compared to those without smartphones who spend $356 million – meaning MGB smartphone owners spend $434 million a week, or $22 billion more a year, on groceries than non-smartphone owners.

Ms Stubbs said the line between the physical and digital retail environment continues to blur.

“Australian grocery buyers with mobile devices want more personalisation – it’s no longer just about rock bottom prices, but about providing consumers with an experience that’s right for them, such as deals targeted to their grocery-buying habits, bespoke reminders for habitual purchases and more personalised and relevant product promotions to encourage loyalty,” she said.
